Manchester City VS Liverpool
Saturday (09/09/2017)
12:30 (WAT)

Liverpool will be plotting the extension of their unbeaten run against Manchester City in the Premier League under Jurgen Klopp's tutelage when they travel down the M62 this weekend.
The Reds have won three of their four top-flight fixtures against City since the German was appointed manager, with a draw recorded the last time the teams met in March.

That game was a frenetic, mesmerising affair with a 1-1 scoreline the most disbelieving element of it given the high-octane display of both clubs.
It is a tad disappointing that Liverpool and City do battle in the early kick off immediately after an international break as neither manager will have been afforded ideal preparation for what is arguably the most exciting and tactically interesting clash in the division.

LIVERPOOL INJURIES
Nathaniel Clyne, meanwhile, will be out for “longer than just a couple of weeks” due to a serious back problem according to Klopp.
The defender hasn’t made an appearance for the Reds since coming on as a substitute in the first pre-season friendly against Tranmere Rovers on July 12.
"It is pretty certain he'll not be available for the majority of the Champions League group matches. If we are fortunate enough to still be in UEFA competition in the New Year he could be added to the squad then,” said Klopp.
"The medical guys are pleased with how he is responding and Nathaniel has shown a really strong attitude, given he is not someone who is used to being out injured.”
Adam Lallana remains sidelined with a thigh complaint.


MAN CITY TEAM NEWS
Just like their opponents, Pep Guardiola’s side have enjoyed an unbeaten start to the season. They are the early pass masters in the league and only Tottenham have attempted more crosses.

It is easy to know what to expect from City: they want to dominate proceedings and possession, but have struggled to assert themselves against Klopp’s Liverpool, who benefit from such a blueprint.

The Reds will look to pressurise their vunerable rearguard, which can be left too exposed and forced into errors.

Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah are primed to exploit the space left by City's expansive full-backs, which should be a particularly interesting element of the game.

Liverpool's threat on the counter is sure to worry Guardiola and of the fastest moves leading to open-play goals scored so far this season, the Merseysiders have scored four out of 20.
In terms of personnel, Vincent Kompany picked up a knock while on Belgium duty and will be assessed ahead of the encounter.

Kyle Walker is available after missing the Bournemouth game due to his sending off against Everton.

lkay Gundogan was the only absentee for the club before the international break, and as mentioned above, Sterling is unavailable due to a one-match suspension.
